COMMUTERS ARE FACING disruption this morning as Dart and Intercity services between Greystones and Bray remain closed after a train came off the tracks yesterday evening.

Lines are closed between the two Wicklow stations with Dublin Bus accepting rail tickets to and from Greystones.

Intercity services from Rosslare and Gorey to Dublin are also affected with passengers required to take transfers between the two stops

The disruption is caused by a train that came off the tracks last night.

Irish Rail confirmed to that rock fall along the Bray Head area of the track caused the train to derail.

It is believed that a number of large boulders fell on to the tracks below.

None of the 33 passengers on the 11.10pm Dart from Greystones to Connolly Station were injured in the incident.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail said last night that the operator had to send another train out to the area to collect passengers last night.

“Where they are situated at the moment it would mean the passengers would have to walk a mile or so in the dark.”

Iarnród Éireann say they apologise for the inconvenience caused.
